Granting of an extra year of
eligibility to Northwestern's Dick
Thornton by the Big Ten's Ath-
letic Representatives may have
paved the way for Wolverine half-
back Brad Myers' return to the
gridiron next fall.
Thornton, a senior quarterback,
was lost this season when injured
on the opening kickoff of the
Wildcats' second game. It was
thought that the All - America
candidate's collegiate career was
at an end.
However, in an unprecedented
move Thursday, the representa-
tives who were meeting in Chicago
extended Thornton another season
of play.
Myers' case is similar and it
would be difficult to see how the
Conference could refuse to grant
him an additional year in light
of the precedent just established.
Myers suffered torn cartilages in
his right knee in the opening quar-
ter of Michigan's second game.
He underwent an immediate oper-
ation. It's thought that the surgery

was successful, although this won't
be determined definitely until the
stocky back subjects the knee to
the strain of game conditions.
Myers dropped out of school
after the injury and has two se-
mesters of academic work to com-
plete before he graduates. He
plans to return to Michigan in
February.
Coach Bump Elliott said he
would discuss the case with Michi-
gan faculty representative Marcus
Plant before deciding whether to
apply for the extra eligibility for
Myers.
Each player must be considered
individually by the faculty group.
"Thornton was termed an 'un-
usual hardship' case by North-
western officials," explained El-
liott, "and the whole Conference
was probably in accord. However,
I'll want to findout the details
of the proceedings before I re-
quest eligibility for Brad."
If the additional year is sought,
the issue will most likely come up
at the representatives annual
spring meeting in May.

Yankees Trade Larsen to A's

NEW YORK (P)-The New York
Yankees yesterday obtained out-'
fielder Roger Maris and gave up
Don (No-hit) Larsen in a seven-
player trade with the Kansas City
Athletics.
The Athletics, who have made
numerous previous transactions
with the Yanks, also received out-
fielders Norm Siebern and Hank
Bauer and first baseman-outfield-
er Mary Throneberry.
In addition to Maris, the Yanks
got shortstop Joe Demaestni and
.first baseman Kent Hadley.

CHICAGO () - Don Carter,
the 1957 champion from St. Louis
and a four-time all-star titlist,
last night captured the $5,000
first prize in the third annual
World Invitational Bowling Tour-
nament.
A clutch double in the 10th
frame of the third game gave the
33-year-old Carter the victory
over Billy Golembiewski of De-
troit.

Gold Breeds Gold

SHE WAS BORN Karol Fageros.
Twenty-five years later she still is Karol Fageros, this despite the
gallant efforts of a Miami businessman to share his surname.
,.But at age 13 she was o1' Karol Fatroast to a male playmate.
Where she is today and where she hopes to be tomorrow she owes to
adolescent plumpness and youth's verbal cruelty.
In the pre-Slenderella days of the 1940s America's women still
engaged in inexpensive exercise. So with tennis racket clutched in
chubby hand, she waddled onto the courts to begin her own private
battle of -the bulge.
You'll still find her on the courts chasing that fuzzy rubber ball.
But no more waddles.
She has shed her bulky cocoon to become tennis' glamor butterfly
and has more materially-rewarding goals in sight than loss of excess
poundage.
Television and the movies are her aims. If they can be the result
of her tennis success just as net stardom was obtained from attempts
to reduce, she won't complain.
idfe has been a series of parlays for Karol, some of them of a
dubious sort, but it's all a part of her philosophy.
"I'm always working diligently toward my goals," says the 5'7"
blond, "but it takes more than just hard work. You need luck and
meeting the right contacts."
Karol modestly neglected to add that feminine beauty has its
assets, too.
I suppose it depends upon one's values whether he or she regrets
being known for something other than ability. And these values have
a curious way of reforming along the way.
"At first, emphasis on my so-called 'beauty' and my gold lame
panties bothered me," she reveals. "But there are certain roads to
get where you want to go. I realized this was something I could
capitalize on.
"I won't say I'm a great tennis player; I'm not. But as Shakes-
peare said, 'To thine own self be true'."
She goes on to explain that she lacks the killer instinct, meaning
that she has trouble finishing off an opponent once she gets ahead.
This was delightful to hear because it avoided any puzzlement on
my part as to how a murderess' heart could dwell within such a lovely
girl.
Karol loses none of her femininity even in the heat of battle.
When a shot is missed, she emits a high-pitched squeal that sends
the audience into embarrassed giggles. And between games she dabs
daintily at the moisture on her face.

Coach Bill Perigo's twice-beaten
cagers are at Indianapolis tonight
to face Butler in an attempt to
win their first game of the year.,
Michigan's undersized squad,
loser to Pittsburgh and Drake in
it's only two starts, surprisingly
enough will boast a slight height
advantage for the interstate battle
tonight.
The Bulldogs, a small, fast squad,
average slightly better than 6'1"
per man, while the Wolverines will
field a team better than 6'2" per
man The tallest man in the start-
ing lineup for either team will be
6'5a" Rich Donley of Michigan.
No Big Man
It will be the first game this year
in which the Wolverines will not
have to fight the "big man."
Against both Pitt and Drake Mich-
igan found itself looking up to
someone 6'8" or 6'10" tall every
time it turned around and this
constantly hampered the Wolver-
ines severely.
However, tonight the tallest man
in the Butler starting lineup will
be 6'4" Ken Pennington. The other
starters for the Bulldogs include
6'3" Orville Bose and 6'2" Dick
Hafer at forwards and 6' Jim Bar-
rick and 5'10" Larry Ramey at the
guards.
Pennington has been the big gun
for Butler this fall with an average
of slightly better than 19 points
per game. Both Ramey and Bar-
rick have chipped in with more
than 10 points per game from the
outside, while Bose and Haffer
together have hit at a 9.5 pace.
Mediocre Mark
The Bulldogs have looked good
in the four games they have
played so far this season. While
their record shows a mediocre 2-2
mark, the losses have come at the,
hands of Illinois, 83-75, and to
powerhouse Ohio State on the
Ohio floor by the slim margin of
three points, 99-96. They have
beaten Wabash and Wisconsin.
However Butler will have an-
other edge tonight. It has not been
beaten on the Butler Fieldhouse
floor since Purdue did the trick on

Six coeds from the University
of Michigan will journey to Battle
Creek today to compete in the
Cereal Bowl Relays, which is one
of the major swimming events in
this area in which women parti-
cipate.
Two relays are open for women
entrants -- the 200-yard medley
relay and the 200-yard freestyle
relay. As it appears, the Ann Ar-
bor contingent is favored to carry
home the trophies (which for the
first time are being offered in the
relays).

Dec. 26 last year, running up a
string of 11 consecutive home vic-
tories.
Butler also has an impressive
home record over the past three
years. Last year they piled up a
12-3 record at home and have
accumulated a 31-10 overall record
-quite a formidable mark for the
Wolverines to buck.
Try To Snap Streak
In an attempt to snap this win-
ning string Perigo will stick with
the same lineup he used against
Drake last week. This means that
John Tidwell and Terry Miller will
start at guards, Donley and Scott
Maentz at the forwards and Lovell
Farris at center.
Tidwell has been the big dis-
appointment for Perigo and to
Wolverine cage fans this year. The
smooth junior, counted on to pro-
vide the scoring punch to make
Michigan's fast break offense work,
hasn't been able to find the range.
He has only been able to come
up with a total of eight field goals
out of about 50 shots this fall as
he has alternated between guard
and forward. His scoring average
has also dropped from the nifty
19.3 per game average he held last
year as a sophomore, to 15.5.
May Break Slump
However, tonight may be the
night that he breaks his scoring
slump. Last; year he tossed in a
total of 24 points as the Wolver-
ines beat the Bulldogs, 86-70. The
last time Michigan visited Indian-
apolis, in 1958, the Wolverines
came out on the short end of a.
85-65 score. Tonight the cagers
hope to make up for that loss,
The game will be televised out of
Indianapolis for Indiana cage fans
on WWTV (Channel 4, Indian-
apolis) starting at 8:15.

gentlemen in the pressbox, always quick to sense such a phenom-
ena in the world of sports, have lingered upon this at great lengths.
That's how.she was dubbed the "Golden Goddess" by a southern
writer. That's also how her gilded underwear became a minor inter-
national incident. (These two Fageros symbols are not related al-
though Karol agrees that they have become a "perfect tie-in." Her
nickname is based upon her golden hair and Greek ancestory.)
